article imageReview: Backstreet Boys tug at the heartstrings on new documentary Special

By Markos Papadatos     Jan 31, 2015 in Music
Acclaimed pop vocal group Backstreet Boys have a new documentary out, "Show 'Em (What You're Made Of)," and it is a compelling film.
The film, directed by Stephen Kijak, was released on January 30 in the United States. They take their fans on a journey throughout the trials and tribulations of their music career, and all of the events that lead up to their 20th year anniversary "In A World Like This" tour.
They also give the viewer a glimpse of each of their hometowns. In particular, the scenes from Kevin Richardson's hometown (where he opens up about his father), Nick Carter's school (where he talks about his teacher and music being his saving grace) and Brian Littrell's vocal issues will certainly move fans to tears, so a Kleenex or two would come in handy.
In this documentary, the Backstreet Boys proved to be true pioneers, who were able to go beyond the ordinary and redefine and reshape contemporary pop music into the genre it is today, and this was all done before social media, which is truly impressive.
The Verdict
Overall, the Backstreet Boys really share their hearts with their fans and audiences with this new documentary. It shows how music has helped them over the course of their lives, and how it has molded them into the superstars that they are today. It is no wonder that they are the best-selling boy band of all-time. Stephen Kijak proves that he is one brilliant filmmaker. It is recommended for all Backstreet Boys fans, as well as listeners of pop music. There is something in it for everybody, and it teaches many important values. This film garners 5 out of 5 stars.
